The app is not recognizing me as an alum. What do I do?
The app matches your LinkedIn email address with your primary email address that you’ve shared with BU. If they don’t match, try to login with your primary email on record with us, then link your LinkedIn account later.
You may get a message that says that we need to verify your information. Please allow two business days for our staff to verify your information. We may need to contact you for additional information if we do not have enough enough to verify your account.
If you do not receive a confirmation email after two business days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your email address.
Is my personal information and address visible?
No. Professional information is the only information that is visible to other alumni. You may see your home information in your profile, but that is only visible to you.

Can anyone access this network?
